Author Shaw Edgington  

I NEVER thought I would be an author, not in a million years. I can't even check a box off on my bucket list, because "write a book" was not on my list. I'm the founder and CEO of a national insurance firm that I've grown by double digits annually for almost 20 years where I manage commercial real estate that we've built, and I'm a mother of two teens. I was content managing risk and preventing loss for my business clients, negotiating leases and everything that comes along with managing employees and a family - until I had the crazy idea to write a book. Writing, having my book published, understanding the art of publicity, marketing and the "business" of being an author is one of the most challenging things I have ever done! And, to make it even more of a challenge, the book business is nothing like any other business I've been involved in. Thankfully, I have had great people to show me the way. As I get ready to release my second book, I'm still learning something new every day about the publishing process.
